AM0281 POSS is a hybrid molecule with a silsesquioxane core, ranging from cage size 8-12, and has external N-phenylaminopropyl groups. It is highly adhesive!. In neat form it exists as a low melting solid at room temperature. It is especially well suited for applications that require adhesion and toughening at high temperatures.
*Bulk quantities of AM0281 are provided as concentrates in solvents, monomer of customer choice due to the extensive adhesion characteristics.
